"To the Cloud"
« on: November 17, 2010, 01:29:55 AM »
Is it me or is Windows claiming to have created all these new features on Windows 7 that were actually made up before by other folks?

The latest 'to the cloud' commercials make it look like no one else ever used the Cloud software before.

Before that it was video control/recording

and so on.

Microsoft claiming to have invented something that's been around?   Hardly news or new procedure.

Well it's kind of weird to see it like they are the only creative thinkers in the world. There is a girl in my classes at school who told five of us that 'cloud tech' was JUST created by Microsoft.

It's kind of amusing to tell a bunch of Network Admin, Web Design and Programming degree types that she knows more about the computing world than we do.

Of course her essay about how 60 year olds (like our TEACHER) shouldn't be allowed to drive shows her forethought.

Ask her what Google is, then.

Microsoft and Oracle are all about marketing.

I had one worker when I was in the navy tell me that:
A: Elvis Presley invented Rock and Roll.
B: That Jimmy Hendrix, Robert Johnson, BB King and a lot of Jazz/Bluesmen had NO influence on metal.

/facepalm

Best bet, Callie? Mute the stupid commercials. Ignore the idiotic girl who thinks she knows about cloud computing.

The commercials annoy me. The only part that amuses me is the one chick, "Yay... cloud!" More of a facepalm laughter moment if anything.

Either that, or superimpose the old Batman show (with Adam West).
